Image alt text and accessibility

We only use alt text where an image conveys essential information for the meaning of the webpage – for example a diagramme showing statistical figures. Where an image is purely decorative, we don't use alt text as this is superfluous information and extra “noise” that distracts from essential information on a page when a screen reader is being used.
